Safe & Drug-Free Schools Formula Grants

Final Year End Report


Adrian City School District
FY 2003-2004

Summary

Adrian City School District received $36,284 to provide Project Northland, Peaceworks, and Second Step. The programs served 1,736 elementary students, and 965 middle school students. District Safe and Drug Free Schools funds also provided prevention programs and services to 1,000 district parents.




Final Report

Goal 1: To decrease violent and conflicting behavior between students and staff by 10%



  • Pre and post tests, control group, year-end incident reports, and year-end mediation reports were provided to show the change at the two middle schools.

  • Behavior changes were reduced but not as expected due to the redesign of the two middle schools into one middle school.



Process Indicators (Accomplishments toward goals or as result of activities)


  • Staff and students reported increased personal use of conflict resolution skills, as well as, increased use of the mediation process.

  • In the 2003-04 year, a Second Step Leadership Team was convened, comprised of teacher representatives from each elementary school, and led by the Safe and Drug Free Schools Coordinator.

  • In the 2003-04 data there was a major discrepancy between incident numbers in the two schools. This does not reflect actual experience as reported by staff. The District staff spent the year planning a fundamental redesign of the middle school program. Simplistically, the change is from two 6-8 middle schools to a single Adrian Middle School serving grades 5 through 8. The anticipation of such change is likely to have created untold effects on both student and staff behavior.

  • The Peer Mediators played a significant role in planning and facilitating student orientation and transition activities. Transition work has provided important opportunities to develop and work on Safe and Drug Free Schools themes with the District’s 4th through 7th graders.

  • Second Step and the Peer Mediation Program will continue in the new Adrian Middle School, which will serve 5th and 6th graders in one building, 7th and 8th graders in another. Evidence of SDFS program effects in 2004-2005 will have to be viewed in the one-time light of fundamental program redesign. We also predict that the Second Step Program which has customarily been part of the 5th grade program will continue in the Middle School context. We also expect to provide similar program and support to 6th graders and their teachers, with classroom involvement of the Guidance Counselor in the 5/6 building.

Alcona Community Schools
FY 2003-2004

Summary

Alcona Community Schools received $7,407 to provide The Michigan Model for Comprehensive School Health Education. The program served 440 elementary students, 246 middle school students, and 143 high school students.




Final Report

Goal 1: To decrease the number of violence-related incidents among 6-8 students by 5%


Initial data indicated the following number of disciplinary infractions: disruptive behavior – 17; police reports filed for violent behavior – 5; juvenile court convictions – 0; general violence related disciplinary infractions – 6; peer mediation intervention sessions – 22. Post data indicates the following number of disciplinary infractions: disruptive behavior – 0 (decline); police reports filed for violent behavior – 0 (decline); juvenile court convictions – 0 (same); general violence related disciplinary infractions – 12 (same level); peer mediation intervention sessions – 16 (decline).
Goal 2: To decrease the number of illegal drug and alcohol incidents among 6-12th grade

students by 5%


Data for this goal will be gathered and documented in the coming year.

Goal 3: Improved teacher training in alcohol and substance abuse prevention will decrease

student risk levels by 5%
The number of units of instruction increased between 2002/2003 and 2003/2004. The number of incidents of drug and alcohol infractions reported for students in grades K-5 was 0. Counseling referrals for family issues – including substance abuse – increased from 30 in September 2002 to 33 in September 2003.

Process Indicators (Accomplishments toward goals or as result of activities)


  • Goal 1 was measured through an analysis of student disciplinary record data.

  • Goal 2 was measured using the MAOD survey.

  • Teachers worked to integrate as much of the Michigan Model into the science curriculum as possible.

  • 6th –8th graders used the Michigan Model violence intervention through units such as “The Two R’s of Preventing Violence and Stopping Assault” and “Protect a Friend, Share Your Skills,” and peer mediation student training.


Allen Park Public Schools
FY 2003-2004

Summary

Allen Park Public School received $11,759 to provide Project Alert. The program served 120 middle school students, and 20 high school students. District Safe and Drug Free Schools funds also provided prevention programs and services to 10 district parents.




Final Report

Goal 1: Rates of alcohol use among 12th grade students will decrease by 7%




  • Results were based on the monthly use of alcohol as measured by the MAOD survey. At the eighth grade level monthly alcohol use has shown a downward trend and has reached national levels. Tenth grade levels have shown a downward trend since peaking in 1998, but are still approximately 10% higher than national levels. Twelfth grade students have remained approximately 10% or more above the national average.

  • Dr. Jim O’Neill’s pre- and post-tests were administered to seventh graders to assess the effect of the Project Alert program. Levels of use of various substances was very low as reported in both the pre- and post-test. However, there were appreciable shifts in attitudes toward several substances following the program in a positive direction, which could be suggestive of less use in the future.



Process Indicators (Accomplishments toward goals or as result of activities)


  • This group would have been the first cohort to have the Project Alert program in the spring of their seventh grade year.

  • Other programming has been put into place to augment Project Alert and continue to expose our students to ATOD and violence issues beyond the middle school. The 9th grade health curriculum has been in place for two years. Programming is now in place at the sixth and eighth grade levels and has been expanded at the seventh grade level. The Project Alert program has been replicated faithfully by the Middle School Prevention Coordinator and currently by the Health Education teacher.
